Bob McNair plans to give contract extensions to Gary Kubiak, Rick Smith

Posted by Nick Scurfield on May 7, 2012 – 1:36 pm

Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair said Monday that he plans to start working on contract extensions for head coach Gary Kubiak and general manager Rick Smith, whose contracts expire after the 2012 season.

McNair said he does not have a timetable for completing the extensions. He will likely meet with Kubiak first and Smith second.

“We’ll start working on that,” McNair said at the Texans’ 10th annual Charity Golf Classic. “I think they’ve done an outstanding job. I’m pleased with ‘em, and if that wasn’t the case, we wouldn’t be extending ‘em.”

Kubiak and Smith have both been with the Texans since 2006. Kubiak signed a two-year extension after the 2010 season. Smith signed a four-year extension in 2008.

The Texans are coming off a franchise-best 10-6 season, their first-ever trip to the playoffs and their first AFC South title. They have been .500 or better in four of Kubiak and Smith’s six seasons with the team.

“It’s hard to play if you don’t have a coach or general manager, so I guess I need to take care of it,” McNair said. “There’s no sense of urgency, but we want to go ahead and deal with it and put it to bed.”

The Texans’ Charity Golf Classic, presented by Verizon, is expected to raise more than $350,000 for the Houston Texans Foundation. The Foundation raised $840,000 for the Houston community in 2011.

    Worst Coach and GM combo.
    – Give up a second round pick when you have many holes to fill, so you chose to fill them will 3 and 4 round players.
    – No backup quarterback when Schaub cost us of the playoffs, he’s only been healthy one season. He’ll cost us the playoffs again, gets hurt easy.
    – Kevin Walter is #2 receiver, he is the worst #2 receiver in the league, cant get open.
    – Foster and Andre Johnson is pulling their hamstring every other game, why not draft a quick RB
    – If you draft another first round tight end I’ll personally pimp hand you, you just lost a middle linebacker, a cornerback, and you think karem jackson is a starting corner in the nfl?

    Cowboy fan convert, here are responses to every point that you made:

    1. The holes we needed were most notably WR and DT. By getting the extra picks, we were able to get the guys we wanted and some.

    2. We had Matt Leinart, who had been a starting quarterback in the league before. It was a fluke that he got injured, but Smith and Kubiak had the presence of mind in the draft to select a quarterback who didn’t do too bad a job. We eventually signed more quarterbacks, but none of them would have been as effective as Yates.

    3. Kevin Walter is not great, but he is certainly not the worst #2 receiver in the league. Moreover, Walter was not our #2 receiver last year, jacoby jones was. While I do not support Jacoby Jones in any way, shape, or form, he was also not the worst #2 receiver in the league last year.

    4. Once again, fluke injuries caused Andre and Arian to go down. We were lucky that, once again, Smith and Kubiak had a quality back up in Ben Tate, who plays at an incredibly high level. As for Andre, I don’t think Jacoby was an adequate replacement, but that was my biggest complaint.

    5. We have never drafted a tight end in the first round. Ever. I don’t know how you thought that. With the pick we had, in the given circumstances, we took who we thought was the best player available in Mercilus. There was no sense in reaching for any other position at that point. I wish we had bulked up a little at either O-Line or corner. That being said, the addition of Joseph last off-season as taken a lot of pressure off Jackson, who started playing better last year.

    I hope you have fun as a Cowboys fan, suffering the eternal struggles of Jerry Jones and Tony Romo. We Texans fans, on the other hand, will be celebrating a super bowl victory in a little under 9 months.
